An officer-involved shooting was reported in the parking lot of a Smyrna office building just before noon Thursday.

No officers were injured, Channel 2 Action News reported from the scene, which is near the intersection of Lake Park Drive and Village Parkway.

Police said they responded to a call about a man shooting at a truck filled with water bottles. When officers arrived on the scene, the man still had a gun, authorities said.

Police said the man did not comply with orders to drop his weapon, prompting an officer to fire multiple shots, the news station reported.

The man’s condition is unknown.

GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said the agency has not been called to investigate.
